Doris Delhomme Hervey was born in Houston, Texas on November 19, 1924 and died peacefully at home on November 22, 2023. She graduated from Lamar High School and Southern Methodist University where she joined Delta Delta Delta and met her husband, Bob. They were happily married for 57 years until his death in 2001. She often joked that when she finally saw him again, he would say, “What took you so long!”
Doris believed strongly in serving her community. As her daughters were growing up, she served as a room mother and girl scout leader. She loved the First United Methodist Church and was a long-term member of the Main Street Class. She was extremely committed to The Blue Bird Circle and served as President and as a volunteer at the clinic at Houston Methodist and Texas Children's Hospital. Doris was a member of River Oaks Country Club, the River Oaks Rose Club, and on the board of Directors of Holly Hall. In addition to these commitments, her family admired her for her business acumen and her exceptional game playing (especially bridge).
Later in life, Doris shared her life with Bruce Weaver and his extended family. They loved to travel and spend time in the country.
Doris is survived by her three daughters: Kathy and Doug Dalton, Nancy Laux, and Robbie Crawford; 8 grandchildren: David Laux, Karen and Jason Walker, Laura Laux, Doug and Lauri Dalton, Lisa and Sanjay Kalavar, Andrew and Brandi Crawford, Abby and Devin McIntosh, and Will and Caroline Crawford; 14 Great-Grandchildren: Emily Laux, Rob and Meghan Laux, Abby Walker, Caroline Walker, Ben Dalton, Julianne Dalton, Kathan Kalavar, Meena Kalavar, Isabel Kalavar, Kieran Kalavar, Lyla McIntosh, Evelyn McIntosh, Liam Crawford, and Eloise Crawford. Doris also has a great-great-granddaughter Madison Laux.
The family is especially grateful to her caretakers: Debbie Dixon, Gail Weems, Marcella Johnson, Sandra Boston, Angela Jackson, Betty Mosely, and Asminda Lara.
A memorial service and reception will be held First United Methodist Church, 1320 Main on Saturday, December 2 at 1 pm.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to be made to the Robert W. Hervey Chair for Parkinson’s Research and Treatment at Houston Methodist, Lifeline Program at First United Methodist Church, The Blue Bird Circle, or the charity of your choice.
